Camps and excursions are an important element to our school community and are critical to effective learning - they provide real world experience for the children. All classes will undertake at least one excursion throughout the year. The health and safety of each child is paramount, especially while they are on excursion.
Camps Years 4-6
An important part of a child's education is the development of a sense of independence. One way in which this can be achieved comes from planning and being involved in stays away-from-home.
We provide the opportunity for children in Year 4 to experience a camp of 2 days duration at Underwater World. This connects closely to the Year 4 curriculum and learning objectives. Year 5 experince a camp of 3 days duration at Camp Goodenough, that focuses on team building and outdoor education. Our goal is to combine a range of educational and social elements to progress children towards their senior year at St Ambrose's.
A one-week excursion to the nation’s capital, Canberra, is an exciting and valuable experience for our seniour students. The Canberra trip complements our St Ambrose's Civics and Citizenship program. Students get the chance to view the icons of our Nation, develop a greater understanding of the democratic process and experiencing many hands on activities. As a special bonus, they also participate in a visit to the snow!
